Summary

For both clinicians and their clients, there is tremendous value in understanding the psychophysiology of trauma and knowing what to do about its manifestations.

This book illuminates that physiology, shining a bright light on the impact of trauma on the body and the phenomenon of somatic memory.

It is now thought that people who have been traumatized hold an implicit memory of traumatic events in their brains and bodies. That memory is often expressed in the symptomatology of post-traumatic stress disorder - nightmares, flashbacks, startle responses, and dissociative behaviors. In essence, the body of the traumatized individual refuses to be ignored.

While reducing the chasm between scientific theory and clinical practice and bridging the gap between talk therapy and body therapy, Rothschild presents principles and non-touch techniques for giving the body its due. With an eye to its relevance for clinicians, she consolidates current knowledge about the psychobiology of the stress response both in normally challenging situations and during extreme and prolonged trauma.

It hits the spot, as intended

An excellent insight into mind & body traumatic events. Very well narrated too.

No wonder so many therapist have failed to understand my issues, so much makes sense now after listening 3 times in a row.

I shall return to listen and join the dots, to further my understanding and appreciation.

A really helpful book

A great book that is ideal in unpacking the deep seeded traumas that can afflict an individual and the proper methods of rejuvenation. I highly recommend this book.

PTSD in a lullaby tone

I am reading this book for my Treating Trauma class. While I am thoroughly enjoying the content, I am struggling to stay awake listening to the reader’s overly soothing, calming, monotonous tone of voice. I will have to resort to a hard copy, unfortunately.

Really bad voice

I tried to listen around 2 hrs, but seems closed to torture to listen the voice, the pace of this reading. So sorry to have to say this, I hope the book will get another chance at a better reading.
